Jiblets: Jeanette Walls entitled to free gossip pass

» More Media

J Les Moonves takes his case to Playboy, which doesn’t make CBS any sexier. Removing 60 Minutes Wednesday, however, will definitely up the X-rated factor.

J MSNBC’s gossipist Jeanette Walls finally opens up about her impoverished childhood in West Virginia in a new autobiogrpahy, discussed in next month’s Vanity Fair. Learning “she lived in a tumbledown shack with no heat and ate out of garbage cans to relieve constant hunger” just about gives her a free pass in celeb rancor.

J New York Times executive editor Bill Keller is considering killing the Thursday technology section Circuits and replacing it with a new section devoted to fitness, shopping and fashion. Great! Instead of last month’s tech news, we’ll get last season’s fashion trends.

J They might be afraid to swear, but Slate isn’t afraid to fuck for research purposes. Testing a variety of condoms (with procedure fully explained), James Verini “and partner” find Trojan Supra and Pleasure Plus to be tied in first place.

J The unofficial contest to name Ann Coulter‘s next book has ended, and the results are in. Winning title: Roosevelt: Wheelchair-Riding, America-Hating Terrorist. Honorable mentions include Democracy: The Liberal Plot to Feed Your Children to the Poor and Help: I’m Out of Liberal People, Places and Organizations to Hate.
